The concept of evil isn't one that comes naturally to me.

I use the word occasionally for its emotional or rhetorical effect, if I especially feel horrified or repelled by some act of someone--or acts-- but I don't mean it literally. I mean it figuratively--

For me, evil has a religious significance, not just a moral one-- or it's a type of reification of something more fluid and unspecifiable, located in action, not in thingness.

I personally separate morality from religion, even though religions embrace many moral principles.
